CCD – Religious Education

Our parish Religious Education Program offers faith formation for children not enrolled in a parochial school which consists of class study and preparation for the reception of the sacraments.

It is a moral obligation for Catholic parents to educate their children in the faith. That way they will learn to know, love, and serve God. The goal of the parish Religious Education Program is to assist parents in enabling and encouraging students to learn more about and live their faith. In all things, learning to pray, understand the Liturgy, Mass attendance, service to others, and love of neighbor is promoted.

Our program provides religious instruction to children from grades 1 to 8. They will receive the First Communion in 2nd grade and Confirmation in 8th grade.

Our Catechists are faithful volunteer parishioners who are well prepared to teach religious education. The Catechists attend workshops and seminars annually. They also attend the “Protecting God’s Children” program, as required by the Archdiocese of Newark.

Our Catechists:

Sister Emilia Din, S.D.V. – 1st Grade
Sister Joicy Palatty, S.D.V. – 2nd Grade / First Communion- Assist: Nicholas Veloso and Lucy Maresca
Ms. Silvia Maresca and Mrs. Anna Maresca – 3rd, 4th & 5th Grade / Assist: Leo Maresca
